Would definitely consider inshore. The others may even prefer it. I usually stay inshore here in La so I'm being selfish and wanting to go out. Thanks for the info....

When it happens again check the voltage in the panel to see if the service is dropping or if the problem is downstream. I'd bet it's downstream. Only do this if you're comfortable. Although it's only 120V, you're staring at the secondary of a transformer, which is high fault current....

Had the same issue on my grandma's GE. Jumped out the switch, megged the motor, went through the entire circuit to no avail. There's a combo of plugging/unplugging & opening/closing the lid that resets the electronic controls on the motor. Solved it. Google it for the model....

You're exactly right. I'll never need to design a motor or worry about rotor flux, just keep the plant running. I wish they had taught more practical relaying/substation maintenance but I guess that's what a good first job is for. Something they never told us in school was that Ugly's Electrical Re...

I get 17mpg max in town with my 5.0. I took one trip and got 22mpg cruising at 60-65mph but once I got on the interstate and set it on 75, my mpg went down to around 19.5.
I was definitely leaning towards the ecoboost but the dealer was more willing to deal on the 5.0 and it had everything I wan...

Unfortunately I had to have the bridge replaced on the Gibson. It was the old adjustable type and the glue was gone and just the 2 screws were holding it down. It was also cracked. Needless to say it didn't hold a tune. Stan Hebert in Hammond put the closest to the original he could but it's still ...

I can't give you a number off the top of my head but I'll give you a recommendation: Do your homework before running a gas line. I know a few people that ran their own and didn't use large enough pipe so they can't get the minimum flow.
It may also be a good idea to upsize the unit a little bit ...

You would need an inverter too, that's where the 12VDC is converted to 120VAC. You could spend a little more and get a Generac ix800 for $320. ...
